A beachfront house in Montauk, listed for $8.6 million, sits 50 feet above sea level and takes advantage of ocean views wherever possible. Windows along three sides of the second level, which features an open floor plan with an exposed beam vaulted ceiling, living room, den and kitchen, provide a clear 180-degree view.
There’s also access to a wraparound deck. “It is spectacular,” says Ray Lord, listing agent with Christopher Chapin of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Lord says it is a “unique property” due to the elevation and its proximity to the center of Montauk Village.
Two of the three bedrooms, located on the lower level, face the beach and have French doors leading to a covered stone patio. There are three full bathrooms plus an outside shower that has an eye-level hole in the wall with another view of the ocean. Other features include a fireplace, skylight and bamboo floors.
